Starting to read Lars Kroijer's 'Money Mavericks', I expected it to be a rather boring book about finance, and not a very suitable read for a literary person like me. It wasn't boring, far from it. This is a really interesting and exciting book about a young entrepreneur building an impressive hedge fund company, starting with two almost empty hands.
The book is very pedagogic, explaining much of the hard work and analysis behind successful hedge funds and how they work, and is surely an excellent read for anyone wanting to know more about hedge funds. For me, however, the thrill of the read was the representation of the personal development of the hedge fund manager himself. Kroijer accurately depicts the difficult life of a true entrepreneur and his personal reactions to the strain and workload.
I can recommend this book not only to business students, but to anyone looking for an interesting biography.Money Mavericks: Confessions of a Hedge Fund Manager (Financial Times Series)
